One couple fans were watching was Madison Chock and Evan Bates. According to the Sochi Olympics on Sunday the couple received a 65.46. Offering a graceful performance, it was obvious this couple could possibly medal with a perfect skate on Monday.

Showcasing different moves, the skate offered a fun program that got the audience involved. Moving quite quickly, there wasn't any doubt the pair was thrilled to be performing in front of the world. Judging by their footwork, the pair seemed to really be focused in the highly theatrical and gave everyone a great show. Seeming to smile more than other couples on the ice, the pair really engaged the audience. According to the Detroit Free Press the couple loves performing on the ice.

With so much attention given to America’s Meryl Davis and Charlie White when it comes to the Olympic ice dance competition, it was great to see Madison Chock and Evan Bates come on the ice early and focus on getting good scores.
